It could be helpful for online collaboration if we could send IRC notifications to #mediawiki when a revision gets commented on or has its status changed.
Notifications could be pretty easily sent to irc.wikimedia.org using the existing RC/UDP structure I think, but we'd need to poke something else in to get one of those bots talking on freenode. (wikibugs is done on a totally different infrastructure, driven by a mailing list, and is godawful. ;)
added bug 16599 for blocks
codurrr by MzMcBride is doing this now...
Fixed. Codurr (run by MzMcBride on TS) does Comments in #mediawiki and comments+status changes in #mediawiki-codereview.
codurr is using the replicated Toolserver tables for this. It's a hackish implementation, and a proper IRC (or XMPP, heh) stream would be nicer.
